Delivering on Entrepreneurship Commitments: Evidence from Post-Soviet Universities
‘Entrepreneurialism and Society: Consequences and Meanings,’ a volume in organizational sociology & economics recently released by Emerald Publishing Limited, features a contribution by IOE experts Pavel Sorokin, Isak Froumin, and Svetlana Chernenko that explores the realm of entrepreneurship-centric learning & development in post-Soviet higher education.
Over the decades, entrepreneurship has far and away transcended the domain to which it traces back its inception.
The commitment to entrepreneurship—or rather entrepreneurialism—has become a universal adage associated with an increasingly nuanced and diverse matrix of socioeconomic bonds across what is now a genuinely boundless range of institutional and individual actors.
By and large, there is a wide overlapping in the semantics of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurialism. Yet, if the former commonly means the process of running risk-bearing ventures for economic and/or social gains, then the latter essentially refers to the meta-dimension of agency and embracing the mindset of an entrepreneur.
When it comes to the educational realm, topics surrounding how universities have been able to advance the acumen and culture of entrepreneurship have recently piqued more interest in the policy, research, and other domains of public discourse. Anchored in a vast wealth of evidence from across former Soviet states, the study by IOE experts Pavel Sorokin, Isak Froumin, and Svetlana Chernenko seeks to yield important new insights into the part that higher education systems have played in helping deliver on the ‘global promise for entrepreneurship / entrepreneurialism.’
